The final verdict: Thanksgiving Dinner.

So I only slightly trashed my health today by eating:

- less than 0.5 cup Arroz con guandules (yellow rice with chick peas)
- less than 0.5 cup of my baked ziti (which came out great!)
- 1 slice of roasted turkey (the skin was good, the turkey itself was tender)
- 1 slice of roasted chicken (the skin was good, but the chicken was rough because it was overcooked)
- 2 slices of flan (Godly, as usual)
- 8 small Nestle Toll-house Chocolate Chip Cookies, plus 2 more later on

Since I didn't eat like a man-bear-pig (no offense to the user), I didn't get full off of this, but it definitely wasn't the evenly balanced dinner I normally have.

What was your final verdict?

I had approximately 17 pounds of stuffing. That's all.

That should fuel back-to-back-to-back centuries

I must admit as a kid/young adult i loved me a whole lotta stuffing as well....I used to nibble a little turkey so as not to hurt my Mom's feelings, and gavooon all the stuffing I could.


I hardly ate a thing yesterday.....all that hosting is a lot of work
However everyone brought stuff; our fridge can hardly close at present so leftovers should keep us going for quite some time

Who the hell actually tracks their Thanksgiving food that closely?
I'm making a guestmate of the amount of food I stuffed into my flavor hole yesterday.
4lbs cheese and crackers.
20 shrimp cocktails.
A bunch of carots dipped in Ranch dressing.
1/2 a turkey.
Giant pile of potato's.
Mound of stuffing.
72 dinner rolls.
4 rum cokes.
3 bottles of wine.

I ate some turkey, stuffing, roasted taters with garlic and rosemary, cornbread, and broccoli. Not to mention most of a bottle of wine. Good dinner.

You actually measure what you eat? I'm not a binge eater but I enjoy the meals without much worry because I usually ride before Thanksgiving dinner and the morning after so it all works itself out.
